Q: What are you doing to keep your employees safe?
A: The safety of everyone in Nickelodeon Universe is our top priority. You can learn about the many things we are doing to keep everyone safe by visiting MOA Safety. Our comprehensive safety plan addresses workplace/employee safety protocols. Those new protocols include providing masks, gloves and hand sanitizer to Nickelodeon Universe employees, conducting extensive education and retraining, providing additional cleaning supplies and equipment, installing sneeze guards, and other social separation barriers, and requiring all employees to receive a pre-shift temperature and health check. We also are requiring safety plans from our tenants and encouraging them to have workplace/employee safety protocols in place prior to reopening.

Our guests also play a key role in keeping people safe and healthy by adhering to social distancing requirements, washing their hands frequently, wearing a mask and, most importantly, staying home if they are sick.
